Neil Finn ' Out of Silence' - Andrew's verdict: 9 out of 10.

Despite the rush in making it, notable because Neil is a perfectionist, this is a singular work of beauty. Quiet and ruminative, the drums only feature in a couple of tracks.  There’s orchestra and Cor Anglais, brother Tim and Neil using a falsetto.  It’s unlike anything in the charts and most like Beck’s Morning Phase of a few years ago. Perfect music for a cool Autumn morning.  Lovely.
